Puerto Rico Mayor Says She Won't Be "Distracted" By Trump's Twitter Attacks

Puerto Rico Mayor Says She Won't Be

President Trump drew the ire of Hollywood after launching a Twitter attack on San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz Saturday.

Cruz said in several TV interviews that the lack of an efficient response by the United States military and government was going to cost people's lives.

"This isn't about me".

"It's something that's really needed and we wanted to step up in a significant way", he said. He maintained Puerto Ricans "want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort", the president tweeted.

Trump is expected to travel to Puerto Rico to survey the damage and emergency response on Tuesday.

Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico on September 20 as a Category 4 storm with winds of 155 miles per hour, the strongest to hit the island in a century.

Early this morning, in recognition of the severe impacts on Puerto Rico from Hurricanes Irma and Maria, Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Elaine Duke approved a waiver of the federal Jones Act.

He responded to the mayor's criticisms by citing her "poor leadership ability", and also took aim at other officials in the USA territory who he said had not been able to "get their workers to help".

On Friday, Cruz criticized the government's response to Hurricane Maria, "We are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy". "This is a people are dying story".

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello has called the destruction to the island unprecedented, though the Republican has praised the USA government's relief efforts. "This is a life-or-death story".

Cruz responded the quote on the brink of tears saying: 'When you're drinking from a creek, it's not a good news story. Because people are not getting food or water...

"Let me stress this: I am committed to collaborating with everybody", he said. "This is a point where we can't look at small differences and establish differences based on politics". "We have done an incredible job, considering there's absolutely nothing to work with", Trump said, adding that "the power grid is gone".

Some lawmakers have been critical of the speed and scope of the response, especially considering warnings that the island, populated with over 3 million federal taxpaying conditional US citizens, would take a direct hit from the storm.

"Now Congress must repeal this law to aid long-term recovery", he said. "What are the effects of falling into that predicament?"
